Sanctuary of the great lakes

Hubbard Lake

Hubbard Lake is a popular destination for summer angling as well as winter ice fishing. It is one of Michigan’s largest inland lakes and is known for its incredible water clarity. The lake is part of a large tract of land that was ceded by the Ojibwa, Ottawa and Potawatomi to the United States in the 1819 Treaty of Saginaw. Permanent white settlers did not begin to arrive in the area until the 1830s. At that time, the lake was known as the “Bottomless Lake”. In 1867, it was named “Hubbard Lake” in honor of Dr. Bela Hubbard, who was a prominent geologist in the state of Michigan.
